Okay, so this cold went a little beyond cold, but I’m now on the right side of it.
1.) Back-up Halloween costume = tuberculosis patient (also could add a dose of reality to Russian prisoner, Bronte sister, or Edward VI of England costumes)
2.) An excuse to not sing in baby music class.
3.) Having hard candy/lollipops AND NOT SHARING becomes entirely reasonable.
4.) In phone conversations, my dad suggests things like “why don’t you go have some brandy?”
5.) An immunity to nasal assaults from bad flatulence.
